THE WINE: The 2021 Buffalo Pinot Noir is classic King Valley. A vibrant deep red, with lifted red fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and strawberry with a background of violets, tarragon, toast and spicy oak. The aromas are echoed on the palate with morello cherry, forest fruits, a vibrant cool climate, cool vintage acidity, bringing life and intensity to the wine and its generous full fruited palate.

THE VINTAGE: The vineyards cycled through the growing season with their own individual rhythm, responding to the challenges of a wet, cool spring, and a long, dry summer to emerge with clean, naturally balanced fruit. The outcome is a low yielding, high quality vintage with strong aging potential.

THE WINEMAKING: The Buffalo Pinot Noir was picked on the 13th of April, with a baumé of 14.3 and temperature of 16°C. The wine was crushed and chilled to a stainless steel tank and was cold soaked for 5 days at 5°C, the juice steeping in the skins to extract maximum colour and flavour while preserving the primary fruit characters. It was then warmed up and pumped over twice daily. It was fermented between 22-24°C with specially selected yeast isolated from the Burgundy region and was fermented to dryness on skins. The wine was pressed off to tank and kept warm where it underwent a slow secondary fermentation for two months. This allows for tannin polymerisation and colour stabilization, giving a silky mouthfeel, vibrant youthful colour and flavour complexity. The wine was minimally fined and filtered prior to it being bottled.

FOOD MATCHES: Excellent with duck ragu pappardelle with shavings of truffle and parmigiano.
